I had created this background a while back using some fun handmade stamps which I used on a piece of paper on which I had cleaned up some extra paint from a project. I always clean up my palette of paint onto pieces of paper in order not to waste it and to create very unique backgrounds. I simply cut it to size and layered it onto green cardstock and then onto an ivory card front. Wanting to let as much of the background show as possible I decided on a simple strip of coordinating orange cardstock as my focal element. I punched with my chevron punch and flagged the end before mounting it to my card front. I added the little greeting which is laser printed and then punched (Modern Label - SU). Thinking it still needed " a bit of something" I added three little clear rhinestones below the greeting. That was better!!!
